Chelsea's defeat to Bayern Munich shows Frank Lampard must sell two players

Further forward, Ross Barkley struggled to stamp his creative mark on the game as Bayern Munich duo Thiago Alcantara and Leon Goretzka controlled proceedings.

The 26-year-old has been in and out of the team since his January 2018 switch from Everton.

The impending arrival of Kai Havertz means he is likely to fall further down the pecking order so Barkley needed to show his worth.

A second-half run through the middle that saw him brought down on the edge of the box offered a glimpse of the quality that Barkley is capable of producing. It was a shame, therefore, that he followed up by smacking the free kick straight into the wall.

If Chelsea are serious about swooping for Havertz then funds are required and Barkley is surely at risk.

It was almost mission impossible for Chelsea against one of the best teams on the planet so the performances of his players will have given Lampard food for thought.

A tough night for Chelsea could have firmed up his plans for next season’s squad as a positive debut season in charge ended on a sour note.
